How to Open HTML Files in Android

I downloaded a file with .htm extension on my Android tablet. When I opened the file, it opened the code language inside the HTML viewer.

How can I view the actual rendered content of an HTML web page inside Android?

  • Install the Google Chrome app on your Android. Next put the file in your Android memory, or save it on Dropbox, and long press the file.

    It will give you an option to open the file in HTML viewer or Chrome. Choose the latter and it will show the HTML rendered and not the tags.

    But will it run any JavaScript in a local htm file though? Tried Firefox & Chrome, can’t find a switch or an “accept for this file” type security thingy. In this case evoked from “file://mnt/sdcard/folder/file.htm” or just “file://mnt/sdcard/” and open folder then file. Security is limiting for those wot is knowledgeable & vigilant. Perhaps we should be grateful. We can always find a workaround, of sorts. I may be some time…………

    This a file of “favourite” URLS plus related data used on PCs and memory sticks at other PCs, (even a Mac !). Whatever is done has to be the same file. Alternative version are a no, no, nightmare. Can we rely on the security of cloud solutions for favourites, like “synchronising”? Cast your vote now.
